Before you read this month’s report, get in the mood by watching our video of rainbow trout being stocked at Red Mountain Lake, Mesa, Arizona (trout supplied by Crowther’s Fresh Water Trout) by clicking this  link:

The above stocking was a “super incentive trout stocking” with trout up to six pounds!

Arizona, Valley Of The Sun, January, 2012, this month is represented by two words – Rainbow Trout. The cooler temperatures allow for the regular stocking of beautiful (and tasty) farm-raised rainbows. Without further adieu, here’s this month’s submission.

LOWER SALT RIVER, Tonto National Forest, AZ

Lower flows again allow for very enjoyable days to be spent fishing the Lower Salt River. Take your time, pack a backpack and enjoy exploring stretches of the river that are otherwise inaccessible in the summer months when flows are high.

This month's hot pattern's a # 16 Ju-Ju Bee nymph fished behind a # 12 Chartreuse Wooly Bugger

Below is the water flow chart for the Lower Salt River for the month from WWW.Watershedmonitor.Com.


Sunrise at Veteran's Oasis Lake, Chandler, AZ

The Siren’s call of “rainbow trout” once again calls anglers to these urban treasures. Conveniently located and well stocked, the lakes provide fun angling. In these hard economic times, the lakes also supply a nutritious food source and the satisfaction of having caught your own supper. I tend to frequent Veteran’s Oasis Lake, Water Ranch Lake and Red Mountain Lake.

Once again, please remember the daily bag limit of four rainbow trout. Harvest what you will consume and return excess fish so that others may enjoy them.

Now, for a bit of humor, here’s a look at “Historical Fishing”. Enjoy

Until the next submission, I remain,
